EE Deal: 30% off 1966 Batman Set

Figures Toy Company Exclusive Batman set is on sale today

Entertainment Earth has a spanking promotion running today in the form of their 1966 Batman Exclusive set from the Figures Toy Company, it’s 30 percent off which makes it a decent price.

I know a lot of collectors grumbled about the price initially, so this is a nice break if you’re still into “collecting them all!”

We’re finally getting the Riddler in a bowler hat

If you’re into Mego and DC Comics, then Christmas just came early as Figures Toy Company just released shots of their 8 inch versions of Harley Quinn, Scarecrow and Mary Marvel figures on their facebook page.

Personally I’m pretty pumped for these, especially more female heroes.

Lots of discussion going on at the Figures Toy Company message board that’s part of the Mego Museum.

You can preorder these at the Figures Toy Company website.

Mego Museum Looks Inside the Mego Factory

Apologies for the double linking, the MegoMuseum URL  is having some issue with Facebook and we’re not really sure why. If you’re an expert on FB and like us, drop us a line.

Every Mego collector has probably wondered at one point what the Mego factory looked like and how everything was made. Thanks to this rare document (the 1978 Mego International Shareholders Report to be exact, which we’ll soon share) we have a glimpse into the Hong Kong wonderland that was Lion Rock.

The Mego Board Room in 1977

This little gem appeared in the Mego Museum Newsletter last week (Subscribe Here!)

This rare picture from 1977 shows where all the magic happened, the Mego boardroom with notables such as President Martin Abrams, VP Neal Kublan, Product Design Manager Vinnie Baiera, Art director Marty Harrison and founder D. David Abrams in attendance.

I’d love to know what they were discussing that day.

Distinctive Dummies unleashes the Night Stalker

Kolchak2

When i woke up this morning I had no inclination that it would be an expensive day but that was before Distinctive Dummies announced a small run of figures based on Kolchak: The Night Stalker. I’ve been waiting years for Carl.

If Carl wasn’t enough, there is also The Night Strangler from the TV Movie of the same name.

As always get them now because once they’re gone, they ain’t coming back.

And the fifth Marvel Mego Set is……

Deadpool and from what I see on the side of his box at SDCC, the Punisher and a second Spider-Man set are due next.

I’m pretty oblivious of this character but I do know that he is really, really popular. Sure I want a Green Goblin set super bad but I’m going to trust Diamond that they probably looked at the sales of their other Deadpool merch and decided he was a solid bet.

I know some Mego fans aren’t thrilled with this choice but honestly, I’ve never been upset about not spending money, so i don’t get that.

MegoMuseum has an exclusive first look at the figures which do look really nice, more here.
